Working at a gym has completely renewed my appreciation for showers.
On Tuesday mornings I lead a beginner’s running group on a 5K run at 9 a.m. Though 9 a.m. may not seem that late in the day, it’s late enough in the morning for the humidity and heat to be raging in Ocala. Everyone returns from the run absolutely dripping sweat.
Unfortunately I often don’t have time to shower between this quick run and my first personal training client of the day, so the sweat ends up drying on my body until I work up a sweat again teaching water fitness after lunch.
I’m pretty sure I spent the entire cool down song of today’s water fitness class fantasizing about my shower. I felt absolutely disgusting, but I’ve come to realize that the nastier I feel pre-shower, the more amazing my shower feels. It’s like that quote, “Without the bitter, the sweet ain’t as sweet.” Without nasty dried sweat, my shower ain’t as sweet.
Now I feel clean and glorious and life is good!
Other than feeling like a gross mess, work today went well.
In between appointments, I took some time to update the functional training board. I forgot to snap a picture, but since I had my notes in my purse, I detailed the workout below:
I think that may be my workout tomorrow!
Lunch today was enjoyed in the break room.
I packed myself chicken salad that I made using leftover chicken from last night’s oven roasted chicken dinner.
I wrapped it up in a whole wheat tortilla and enjoyed it with a side of trail mix.
All of this food talk now has me daydreaming about dinner…
Hope you guys are having a lovely Tuesday!
